#1 – Andre Harrison (17-0)
Harrison has one of the most impressive resumes on this list for a fighter who wasn't picked up by the UFC. The 29-year-old boasts wins over Kurt Holobaugh, Desmond Green, and Steve Siler. Last year he captured the WSOF featherweight title by defeating Lance Palmer by unanimous decision at WSOF 35. Harrison faces UFC veteran Tuerxun Jumabieke at PFL Event 1 on June 7.
#2 – Kevin Aguilar (12-1)
Aguilar captured the vacant LFA featherweight title last year when he knocked out UFC veteran Damon Jackson at LFA 4. The win was the 28-year-old's fourth in a row, as he hasn't lost since a 2013 TKO setback to former UFC featherweight Leonard Garcia at Legacy FC 26. Aguliar faces interim featherweight champion Thanh Le at LFA 40 on May 25.
#3 – Bryce Mitchell (9-0)
Mitchell will be featured on the upcoming season of "The Ultimate Fighter." The 23-year-old has won eight of his nine career fights by stoppage and has only gone out of the first round twice.
#4 – Jason Soares (10-0)
Soares has finished nine of his 11 career opponents including Luis Gomez, whom he defeated at Titan FC 49 to capture the promotion's featherweight title.
#5 – Andres Quintana (13-2)
A standout in the Combate Americas promotion, Quintana has won five of his last six fights. “The Bullet” has finish 10 of his 15 career opponents.
